Event: Integrating communications in evaluation – 11h00 – 30 January 2020 ILO, Geneva

For those in Geneva region and interested in communications and evaluation – I will be making a presentation in January 2020, read more:

The Evaluation Office of the International Labour Organization invites you to a presentation by Glenn O’Neililo_image.  The topic of Dr O’Neil’s presentation will be Integrating communications in evaluation.

Communications is an important aspect of evaluation; it has been said that without communications, evaluation would not be possible.

Evaluation commissioners and evaluators are already communicating – but is communications being used optimally to support the evaluation process? In this presentation, Dr O’Neil will challenge the assumptions of how communications “works” for evaluations and propose solutions based on his experience as both a communicator and evaluator, backed up by communication practice and theory.

Dr O’Neil is founder of Owl RE, evaluation and research consultancy, Geneva. Since 15 years, he has led over 100 evaluations and reviews for some 40 organizations, including UN agencies, NGOs, foundations and governments. Dr O’Neil was previously a professional communicator in the non-profit sector and has produced his own guide on Integrating Communications in the Evaluation Process (pdf).

The event will take place from 11:00-12:00 on Thursday 30 January in the ILO Library on R2 (main floor). After the presentation, there will be a networking lunch (at your own expense) in the ILO cafeteria.

No need to register – please come to the ILO reception at 10:50 and ask for Craig Russon of the ILO Evaluation Office.

    Hello, I found the topic very interesting and would like to know if there will be an online transmission. As I live in Brazil, participating in person will not be possible.

    Thank you,
